Healthy diet

Adopt a healthier diet, with fruits and vegetables that are rich in antioxidants. Eat foods that contain zinc, vitamins C and E, selenium, folic acid, and L-carnitine. Supplements may also be beneficial. Avoid junk food and processed food. If you are overweight, you should pay attention to the amount of soy you consume, because it may influence your ability to conceive.

Balanced weight

Keep your weight under control. Hormonal disorders may occur if you are overweight. On the other hand, if you are underweight, you may experience low sperm count or non-functional sperm.

Exercise

Exercise regularly, but do not exaggerate. Excessive exercising can also be harmful, as it decreases the amount of testosterone your body produces. If you use steroids, you should take into account that they can cause testicular shrinkage.

Stop smoking

Quit recreational drugs and smoking, and reduce the intake of alcohol and caffeine. Low sperm count, low sperm motility and abnormal hormone levels might be caused by smoking. A high intake of alcohol will lead to a decrease in sperm count and motility and abnormal sperm shape. Marijuana has the same negative effects on sperm.

Avoid toxins

Avoid regular contact with toxins and poisons like pesticides, insecticides, and heavy metals. If you work with these chemicals, take all the safety measures to avoid skin contact: wear gloves and masks and protective clothing.

Keep your man cool

Did you know that an increased scrotal temperature inhibits sperm production and development, leading to low sperm count? Avoid exposure to excess heat, like staying in hot tubs and saunas, sitting for long periods or wearing tight underwear that can overheat your testicles.

Untreated health problems

You may want to check for untreated health problems. If you suffer from diabetes, you may also suffer from retrograde ejaculation, which means that the semen goes to the bladder instead of leaving the body through the urethra. Sexually transmitted diseases can cause infertility in men. Do an STD screening to see if you suffer from unnoticed infections. Hypogonadism causes erectile dysfunction and a decreased sex drive.

Managing stress

Managing stress is very important for a healthy sexual life. Stress may cause an imbalance in the hormones needed for sperm production and can decrease your libido. Try counseling if you have difficulties in counteracting stress.

Treating underlying medical conditions and adopting a healthy lifestyle are the best methods to increase male fertility.
